    Is the yolk suppose to stay at the bottom on the egg or keep go towards the top when you turn it. Does that eventually stop or does it keep floating towards the top

    For my chicken eggs, the yolks float to the top for the first 12 days, then they start to settle to the bottom as the chick grows.

    I'm sorry yours didn't develop. Don't give up think of it as a learning experience. Sometimes eggs don't make it even when it's done by the hen. Just use the candling pics as comparison so, you will recognize quitters sooner.
